Infill J fi : ?! I 15? in- J If li ft I' H' it 4 Readt roa War. The late census shows that South Carolina is it a curious condition to fight the North. The free white persons ol one district are set down at 1,950, the colored population in the same district 12,094 i the whites forming only one-sixth of the number colored, upward of 12,000 of whom are slaves. In Lower All-Saints district the disproportion appears to be still more marked ; for Instance, in a population of 4,831, only 22G are free per sons, 119 of whom are males. This would give an average of rather more than 38 slaves to each white male in that district. The grand total of slave population in the above districts is 16,605; of free persons, 3,195. Here we have a population of which less than one-sixth aro white persons,andthe remaining five-sixths slaves. It is singular that this over-restless State can't see the weakness of her folly and the folly of her weakness! TERMS OF THE JOURNAL. The Baftsmas's Journal ia publis...

' WHO ARE THE DISUNION ISTS 1 We answer, without fear of successful con tradiction i the Breckinridge Democrats in the South, aided and abetted by allies of the same stripe of politics at the North. Has a Repub lican ever been heard threatening, advocating Or Justifying Disunion 7 We defy any one to point out a single instance anywhere or at any time 5 and, with very few exceptions, indeed, there are no persons, of any party, outside of the Breckinridge organization, who so declare themselves. The late secession movements in the South are not, as Democratic politicians contend, the direct resnlt of a Republican tri umph. The way the U. S. Senate and House of Representatives will be constituted, the Re publicans having no majority in either branch, and were he ever so much disposed to do so, Mr. Lincoln is powerless to do harm.

We print in onr paper to-day the most Im portant parts or President Buchanan's last an nual message. True to the slave power, the Old Public Functionaiyi tries to throw the blame of the present agitated condition of the country upon the North.. In this connection, lio asserts that "the long-continued and intern pcrate interference of the Northern people with the question of slavery in the Southern States, has at length produced its natnral effects." Who does not know that this is false 7 If there had been any 'intemperate interference,', during the last eight years, at least, it would only prove that Mr. Buchanan nnd his Demo cratic predecessor were ctoo weak to perform their sworn duty. ' The secession movement, however, is not the result of such "interfe rence" as the President refers to it is the di rect offspring of the treasonable dogmas that, tor the last quarter of a centu...
